Residential services

Eastwood Grange offers three different residential settings for pupils attending the school, each of which is very responsive and geared around need. We can offer:

  • 38 week placements
  • 52 week placements
  • Limited respite care (in negotiation with the relevant Local Authority)

We strive to create a very homely and welcoming feel in all of our homes and young people are encouraged to personalise their own bedrooms.

Building strong relationships

Care staff at our homes spend a lot of time and effort on getting to know each and every young person individually. It is only by doing this that we can give them the support they need to change their behaviours over a period of time and fulfil their potential. We strive to build strong relationships, not only between a young person and the residential staff caring for them, but also between the school, home, therapy team and any external agencies.

Going the extra mile

Many of the young people who attend Eastwood Grange have had a number of failed placements in the past. As such, we understand we need to do things differently in order to get different results. We always aim to go the extra mile to show young people they are valued and provide the stability and support they require to believe in themselves and develop to become successful adults. In the past, we have:

  • Organised a birthday party for one of our residential students and invited his mum and siblings to the home to celebrate with him
  • Driving a young person with a keen interest in ice hockey to games and training sessions

Ensuring young people are heard

It is important that our young people feel valued and we are proud to report that pupil voice is really well recognised in each home. We actively encourage students to get involved in the care they receive and to feedback their ideas and opinions on how they would like the home to be run. There are plenty of opportunities for them to share their views, for example through:

  • Regular house meetings
  • Advocates who go into the homes to speak with young people
  • Speaking to their dedicated keyworker
  • Speaking to an inspector who visits once per month
